This week marks the 40th anniversary of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic. Who would have expected to ever see that back in 1977?

That's really very cool. There are times when I wish I had a really good run on that, or maybe a series of runs of the best stuff. Ah, well. Happy Birthday anyway!

There's a lot of stuff there that's well worth checking out.

Anything you'd particularly recommend? I might start looking on Ebay if I know what's good.

How much have you read in the past? There are now some really nice collected editions of a lot of classic stories, most of which are worth picking upif you can find a reasonably priced copy. Not necessarily the better known stuff, either; I'd personally reccomend Meltdown Man, Alan Moore's Skizz, Nikolai Dante and/or Sinister Dexter, for a start.

I've only ever read Skizz, I'll definitely have to look for the rest. Thanks!

Ok, on your recommendation, I picked up these:
Sinister Dexter Vol 1 Gunshark Vacation
From Russia with Lust: The Nikolai Dante Omnibus

I look forward to getting them (ordered from ebay) and reading them. Thanks!
